I nearly wasn’t going to write this Little Loves post as I have been really poorly this week. But I suppose that’s what Little Loves is all about, remembering the little things that have happened in amongst the ordinary. The ordinary either being in bed or on the sofa. So here are some of the little things that have made me smile amongst the illness. I apologise now for the lack of photos.


One advantage of being poorly is that not only have I picked up a book, I managed to finish it too. I read Caroline Flack’s autobiography, which was the perfect book to read in between naps. I wouldn’t say I am a huge fan of hers, but I do like reading autobiographies. Probably something to do with my nosey nature.

I watched my 14 year old son get up on Monday and head for his work experience placement instead of school. WORK EXPERIENCE, how the hell did that come around. I absolutely loved my work experience in a local bank, which resulted in them offering me a job when I finished school. I really hoped Morgan would have the same experience (ok without the job offer, as I know only too well how much things have changed since I was 16), and do you know what, I think he did. I picked him up on Monday and he came out with a huge smile on his face. His placement was working in an I.T department of a local business, and I think it helped as the majority of the people were young guys. I think the past few days have reinforced his desire to work with computers when he leaves school.


Over to my husband who has kept the house ticking over this week. We carried on using our Hello Fresh box and he made creamy chicken with mash, and honey glazed pork. Both were delicious.

Lots of chatter, giggling and shouting at Katie’s party which was held at a local trampoline centre. Thankfully it was before my illness really kicked in, so I survived…… JUST.

Mainly jogging pants and a comfy bra, oh the glamour of being ill.

And lastly

How is it February already next week. I know January tends to drag for most people, but I absolutely love this month and will be sad to say goodbye to it. But hopefully next week I will be 100% healthy, and get back to work, and swimming at David Lloyd. Have a great week x
